Sofia Montoya has been telling her story for as long as she can remember: She was born with Holt-Oram, a syndrome that meant her heart was on the wrong side of her chest, her right hand was missing a thumb and her intestines were jumbled.
Now a sophomore at the University of Colorado, Montoya was selected to be one of eight women nationwide to represent the American Heart Association’s women’s heart health initiative, Go Red for Women, in 2019. She was selected after an interview process that included a video submission.
